Subject Re: Apache 1.3.20 rolled and ready for testing

   Since when do I have to have a host entry for my machine in order to 
run httpd?  I computer thinks its hostname is 'bartleby'.  There is no 
DNS entry for it, nor an /etc/hosts entry, since it gets its IP via 
DHCP.  When I try to launch Apache, it complains:

[Thu May 17 17:36:23 2001] [alert] httpd: Could not determine the 
server's fully qualified domain name, using for ServerName

And it exits with an entry in the error log:

[Thu May 17 17:36:23 2001] [alert] mod_unique_id: unable to 

This is new; previously it launched OK.  If I set ServerName in 
httpd.conf, the complaint to stderr goes away, but the log entry is 
still there and the server still exits.

I reckon I can add bartleby to /etc/hosts as an alias for localhost, but 
it looks like one part of the server thinks it can deal, and another is 
bailing out.  Anyway, this used to work.
